For too long, both Bo and Hope have been kind of boring. They’ve had a few good storylines together (Zack’s death, plane crash, Bo’s transplant) but for the most part, in previous regimes, they’ve been support at best, invisible at worst. Now they’ve got something tasty to work on. And by mixing it up with Carly and Justin, the writers get a whole lot of other Salemites involved, which I always like. A little history helps — Doug and Julie always had their troubles, and lived apart for long periods. Same with Maggie and Mickey, John and Marlena, Kayla and Steve. Nobody is allowed real long-term happiness until they become recurring (or are fired). That’s what I love about soaps — not like real life at all!
